Quarantine Beach

Enjoy the tranquil waters at Quarantine Beach.

Swim, Snorkel, Kayak, Bush Walk Or Simply Relax On The Quiet Beach

Enjoy the tranquil waters at Quarantine Beach – now celebrating it’s 40th anniversary as an aquatic reserve!

You can swim, snorkel, kayak, bush walk or simply relax on the quiet beach. It is a perfect place to bring the family and experience the refreshing, restorative beauty of the Australian bush and the salt sea air.

Only 200m long and facing northwest into Little Manly, the serene and peaceful Quarantine Beach offers a private and sheltered location hemmed in by rocks and national park with silvery sand and clear, calm water.

Bring your snorkels too! So many gorgeous sea creatures have made quarantine beach and wharf their home. Snorkels, kayaks and stand up paddle boards are available for hire from Q Station’s Visitor Centre.

Quarantine Beach is named after the old Quarantine Station which operated from 1828-1984, and was the first port of call for all quarantined ships and their passengers. Today it is part of the Sydney Harbour National Park.

Quarantine Beach is located right next to Boilerhouse Kitchen & Bar as well as our Wharf Cafe.
